Searching Exam Paper Using Course Code

In CUHK Exam Database, when you are using course code to search exam paper, the search result will include exam papers used in different classes in the same course. (i.e. searching CSC1110, the search result will include the exam papers used in CSC1110A, CSC1110B, CSC1110C etc.)

New Advanced Search Option - “Equals (Exact Phrase)”

The “equals (exact phrase)” option can be used for the Title, Author/creator, Subject (LCSH) searches. Users can use it to search for the exact match results. For example, if users search "William Shakespeare" as the author/creator, they can precisely search the results that contain "William Shakespeare" in the author field.
